Hello, and welcome back!

Last time, we discussed a few easy ways parents could reduce the risk of electrical shock. This week, let’s review some steps you can take to reduce your child’s risk of choking.

Most choking injuries occur with food items, so be sure to cut your child’s meals and snacks into bite-sized pieces. Remember, bite-size for most babies and toddlers is much smaller than for older children. Nuts, grapes, carrots and popcorn pose the highest risk, so consider keeping these foods out of reach altogether. 

When choosing toys for your little ones, make sure they do not include small parts your child could put in his or her mouth. Keep an eye out for labels on toys with small parts that warn they are not safe for children under three years old.
